WOMEN'S WORLD CUP
US Soccer and Mexican Football make bid for 2027 Women’s World Cup: What other countries are in the race?
US Soccer revealed that together with the Mexican Federation they will seek to host the 2027 World Cup.
December 8 is a historic day for women’s soccer in the United States and Mexico, as US Soccer and the FMF, the federations of both countries, officially submitted their bids to jointly host the 2027 Women’s World Cup.
In a statement, US Soccer and the FMF announced their official joint bid with Mexico to host the Women’s World Cup, which would be the first to be jointly organised by the CONCACAF countries, thus taking an important step at the international level.
Under the name ‘New Heights’, US Soccer and the FMF jointly launched their official bid to host the tournament, assuring that the necessary infrastructure is in place to host a World Cup.
Joint bid to host World Cup
“Today, the US Soccer Federation and the Mexico Football Federation have submitted a joint bid to host the 2027 FIFA Women’s World Cup – a bid that will capitalize on a moment of extraordinary growth in women’s sports to deliver a tournament of unprecedented success. Together, the United States and Mexico look to bring the worldwide game to NEW HEIGHTS,” read the statement.
In doing so, US Soccer and the FMF are submitting a joint bid to compete with the alliance of Germany, Belgium and the Netherlands to host the Women’s World Cup in four years’ time.
US and Mexico look to build on 2026 World Cup momentum
Cindy Parlow Cone, president of US Soccer, highlighted the growth of women’s soccer internationally and said that both the United States and Mexico are capable of hosting the World Cup in 2027, as they will take advantage of the venues and infrastructure being developed for the men’s World Cup in 2026.
“This is a pivotal time for Women’s soccer,” said U.S. Soccer President Cindy Parlow Cone. “Around the world, Federations are beginning to invest more and more in the women’s game and records are being rewritten for revenue, viewership, and participation. The US and Mexico are in a unique position to host a World Cup that will leverage the same venues, infrastructure, and protocols used for the Men’s World Cup just a year prior. As a result, we believe the time is right to host a FIFA Women’s World Cup that features a truly world-class experience for players and fans, alike. This will not only unlock the economic potential of women’s soccer, it will send a message to young players around the world that there is no limit to what they can achieve.”
